Since before there was a North Carolina, generations have lived off the waters of the Core Sound.
Their way of life, their love of the water, their determination to survive,
their culture, language and cuisine has fed the spirit and body of the state
from one generation to the next. Now, awash in globalized seafood, amidst
shifting political and economic landscapes, fishermen with one foot in the
past are charting a new course for their future, steeped in tradition while
looking far ahead, certain that they will make it Big.
